== General Notes ==

If the USB modem does not immediately attempt connecting once you've saved the correct settings, move the USB modem to another port on the PC, this seems to work occasionally.

If you need to use SMS (e.g. Optus sends the mobile number needed for recharging prepaid modems by SMS), install Betavine Connection Manager (Lucid and later) from https://forge.betavine.net/frs/?group_id=76

== Useful links ==

Sakis3G script- Sakis3G is a tweaked shell script which is supposed to work out-of-the-box for establishing a 3G connection with any combination of modem or operator. It automagically setups your USB or Bluetooth™ modem, and may even detect operator settings. You should try it when anything else fails!

Sierra Wireless USB 306

Soul (Optus)

follow the instructions in this link: http://sierrawireless.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/641/~/can-i-use-a-sierra-wireless-modem-on-linux-machines-%28direct-ip-modems%29%3F (many other Sierra Wireless USB Modems listed here also)

Sierra Wireless USB 312 (Ultimate)

Telstra

10.10

Yes

Just requires standard APN configuration through Network Manager. Also refer to instructions at this link: http://sierrawireless.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/641/~/can-i-use-a-sierra-wireless-modem-on-linux-machines-%28direct-ip-modems%29%3F (many other Sierra Wireless USB Modems listed here also)

Sierra Compass 885

Telstra

8.10

yes, but

compile kernel module from vendor's site, should be supported OOTB in 10.04 http://sierrawireless.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/500/~/can-i-use-my-sierra-wireless-modem-on-a-linux-operating-system-%3F-%28-v.1.7.30%29

ZTE K3565

Vodafone

9.10/10.4

requires mode setting

use the software from https://forge.betavine.net/projects/vodafonemobilec/ to switch modes

ZTE MF626 / MF636

Telstra

9.10/10.04

requires mode switching

Appears as a CD on the desktop on first insert. Right click and select 'Safely Remove Hardware' then it gets reattached internally as a modem and can be used as normal. YMMV, as I have to use "Eject" for the modeswitching to occur (on 9.10), and sometimes requires a change of usb port to get working. Command line tool to disable the need for modeswitch is available at: http://github.com/agentk/ztecdrun

General Notes

If the USB modem does not immediately attempt connecting once you've saved the correct settings, move the USB modem to another port on the PC, this seems to work occasionally.

If you need to use SMS (e.g. Optus sends the mobile number needed for recharging prepaid modems by SMS), install Betavine Connection Manager (Lucid and later) from https://forge.betavine.net/frs/?group_id=76

Sakis3G script- Sakis3G is a tweaked shell script which is supposed to work out-of-the-box for establishing a 3G connection with any combination of modem or operator. It automagically setups your USB or Bluetooth™ modem, and may even detect operator settings. You should try it when anything else fails!
